I was on Splinters of a Broken Sun

Earlier this month, my old friend Matt asked me to be on Splinters of a Broken Sun, his most excellent actual play podcast. My friends Patrick and Trudy were also involved, so it was an extra special experience for me. We all met on text-based internet games over ten years ago, so it was a great reunion.

Anyway, we play as the church/government’s elite agents, tasked with tracking down the series’ regular protagonists. And, as Trudy said when we took a lunch break, we were “the Team Rocket of elite government agents.”

Also, I loosely based my character on Outback from GI Joe.

I think it turned out great, and I wanted to share it with you. If you want to hear my nerdy voice, if you like dark fantasy settings, and if you like the idea of three buffoons running amok in a dark fantasy setting, you’ll love this podcast.

Matt is also an excellent MC, storyteller, and GM. And he has the voice of an angel.

Which was honestly pretty normal at that point. It had been normal since that dorky kid fell into the lava, really.

Anyway, a reborn evil threatens to enslave the galaxy, and the Republic’s third-best-selling action figure – Luke Skywalker – may become their greatest enemy.

Freed from their detention cell, a group of rebels begin their escape from the Imperial planet Byss. But the sudden appearance of Luke Skywalker, who is the only Jedi so he gets to call himself a Jedi Master, could mean unfortunate news for the Rebels.

Has Luke fallen under the spell of the dark side, or do those dark circles under his eyes just mean he needs to drink more water and invest in a better concealer?

So, The Last Jedi came out last month. My last blog post came out before that. This post was originally meant to coincide with TLJ and get me some sweet trend-clicks, but I goofed up on that one.

If you don’t want to talk about Star Wars, that’s totally fine. I get it. You can come back to this whenever you’re in the mood.

If you do want to talk about Star Wars– hello! Let’s look at a Luke Skywalker figure from the 1990s. I think it’s a safe bet, because good ol’ Luke would never generate any sort of controversy… right?
